On the Record

An intelligent comment by the Quisling Labour MEP Stephen Hughes on The BBC’s The Record Europe Elimination of the opt out will only effect 9% of the population. Supposing we were to say to the esteemed Mr Hughes that we were going to close all the Mosques in Britain. He would quite rightly get upset and babble on about freedom. But our Trump card would be: Muslims only make up 3% of the population. To which he would correctly reply, so what. So when exactly is it acceptable to remove the freedom of a group of people, simply because they make up a minority? In addition, the fact that only 9% of the country’s workers will be effected rather undermines the logic for the law in the first place. Anyone who doesn’t want to work more than 48 hours can quite easily find a job where it is not required. After all 91% of the working population already have.
